Closed Doors, Opened Windows!

Life is full of quirks.

Change is inevitable, and the irony of it all is that the only thing that doesn't change is change! And this time I don't mean menopause.

God closed a door when I received a rejection notice from the syndicate. But that doesn't mean I'm giving up. I just need to find a new window! And since last week, I have found many.

Let's just call these ideas 'Windows of Opportunity', or 'Whoa' for short- like 'Whoa, Dude! That's totally awesome!' For the record, any window of opportunity should be considered awesome. Totally.

Window Number One- Books. I could focus entirely on books. Women's Lit, fantasy, children's stories, cookbooks, How-to's and craft books. I have enough notes to write several of each at the moment!

Window Number Two- Self Syndication. Since the syndicate didn't work out, I can do it myself with a lot of elbow grease. I can also sell articles to magazines. Family humor isn't a high commodity (oddly enough) but information is. I'm full of a lot of things, and information is one of them!

Window Number Three- Blogging Website. Using my blog as a springboard, I can sell products and services. Not too sure about this one, but I have no problem endorsing things I use myself- that's one thing i won't compromise! For instance, You'll never see me endorsing diet pills or spray for jock itch. But I would definitely have ads for M&M's! Just a few ads that are self-picked, mind you. I hate going to a family site and seeing ads flash from something family friendly to a half-naked woman selling lingerie!
As for the services, I'm working on something that I used to do for friends and family that was really fun- but I won't tell you what it is just yet! Let's just say I used to have the online title of SillyPoet!

Lots to think and pray about, and new skills to learn. Who said life slows down after forty? It's more like a downhill run!

HaHa I love your comment 'It's more like a downhill run!'
That's what it seems like here! God does renew our youth...that means energy too right ;-)
